Malaysian Ringgit and US Dollar - Market News


When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the MYR vs USD, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.


Malaysian Ringgit (MYR)

The Malaysian ringgit is up around 8% (to late November) against the US dollar since the beginning of the pandemic crisis in March and is gaining favour from bank commentators such as HSBC due to the attraction of the carry trade – the ability to earn higher interest when holding MYR versus other major currencies.

US Dollar (USD)

The US dollar has dropped steadily for the last 3 months against nearly all major currencies. In late November the US Dollar has fallen to a two and a half year low with the US Dollar Index hitting its lowest value since April 2018.

How to get Best MYR to USD Exchange Rates

There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

Reduce Excessive costs and fees

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
